So 40 is the new 30? If you were not taking care of your skin in your 30's, you still can and if you were ... then 40 is the new 20! Let me tell you how your face ages in your 40's.
1. Problem: Lack of Hydration
Drink water! Have you read my post "Why Drink More Water?" Your lymphatic drainage slows down as you age and the MOST economical support you can give yourself is to drink lots of water. If you wake up with puffy face, you know your lymphatic system is not draining well. Massage your face, don't smoke and limit alcohol consumption. Next, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. You need something rich and nourishing. When putting on your moisturizer at night and in the morning, massage it into your face. It feels great! I have several choices for moisturizing, depending on your skin issues.
3. Simple Strategy
Guess what? You don't have to wash your face in the morning every day as long as you do it before you went to bed. Skipping cleanser in the morning ensures that you won't strip your skin, as this is the decade when sebum production begins to decline due to perimenopause or, in some cases, full-fledged menopause.
Splash your face with cool water. Let dry and a few times a week use my daily gel mask. It is an all natural alphahydroxy gel mask that gently removes damaged skin cells for fresher looking skin.
After rinsing the gel mask, use a serum. My Amazing face firming serum repairs! The Firm and Repair Treatment Serum features ingredients to repair the damage caused by sagging skin, especially in the forehead and around the eyes. Peptides stimulate the synthesis of collagen by more than 300%.
Last but certainly not least, moisturizer. It's so important in your 40's. My luxurious face cream, Daytime Skin Nutrition, instantly hydrates and rejuvenates the skin. I also have a wonderful moisturizer, Cell Renewal Anti-Oxidant Protection Plus SPF 30 if your foundation doesn't have it.
Wash your face before you go to bed with a gentle cleanser. Facial Magic Gentle Face Cleanser is ideal for mature, dry, acute acne, sensitive, sunburned and windburned skin. It’s important to find a product that removes all make-up and excess oils yet imparts good hydration.
Before finishing with a luxurious moisturizer before hitting your pillow, add a peptide product to your routine. Peptides are scientifically proven to help you create your own collagen. My Peptide Serum is an exceptionally effective anti-aging Multi-Peptide Serum with three powerful peptides, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide, and Oligopeptide, have been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Lastly, use my Facial Magic Overnight Sensation.This is the best night cream! It has a bio-engineered strain of the Red Marine Algae called APT. As we age our skin becomes thin and it isn’t flexible! APT helps triggers a cellular synthesis of an amino acid found primarily in collagen which leads a thickening of the skin and to FIRMNESS and therefore helps in reducing wrinkles.
40's skin care doesn't need to be hard! You can rewind the clock easily. You can undo the damage. Does your skin look like it's falling? It's not. It's just deflating. Your skin is starting to lose it's ability to bounce back, thus the saggy look.
